1753 Johanna Warner, half-length, in a yellow dress and bonnet by Francis Milner Newton (auctioned by Bonhams) From Bonhams

Seventeen years have passed sonce Johanna's Highmore portrait, but she still likes caps and her dress has over-sleeve cuffs from decades earlier. She wears a lace edged handkerchief, a fichu like those worn in the 1780s. Her gold satin over-garment is open and looks like a butonless jacket. This portrait shows her natural hair color.
